can't access the network through nautilus

my FC2 is part of a windows network called (for the sake of this thread) "MSHOME".

Now I stupidly overwrote my "MSHOME" shortcut in my $HOME directory which had been set up when I installed nautilus.
I could easily get the shortcut back by uninstalling and reinstalling nautilus, but nautilus has so many dependencies that it's going to be a really long and painful process and not really worth my bother.

Is there a nice and easy way to recreate that shortcut without using another third party software?

Dependencies are not an issue, if you are going to reinstall the software. For example:

rpm -e --nodeps nautilus
yum -y install nautilus

However, this will not magically recreate a shortcut that you had. The only way to get one back is to restore it from backup.
